Download files directly without showing the Opening window

Hi, whenever I want to download something, Firefox shows me a Opening window. If I mistakenly select the "Open with" button, a file is downloaded to my /tmp/ directory and then opened with an application, which takes a huge amount of RAM for stuff like iso.

The another thing is that it's very annoying and takes a lot of time if you want to download many files from many websites. You have to manually choose save file for all the files you download, and the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" option is greyed out.

Is there a way disable the "Opening" window and just download the files I wish to download?
